MV Demetrios II Shipwreck
- Point of interest
Nowadays an attraction along the coasts of Chloraka village in Paphos, M/V Demetrios II Shipwreck was once a Honduran-flagged cargo ship. In 1998 the ship left Greece travelling towards Limassol and then on Beirut, Lebanon, carrying timber cargo. But a heavy wind and strong current lead the ship Demetrios II to the western coast of Cyprus, and set it aground few hundred meters from the shore.
After the efforts for its movement and sinking turned out impossible, the shipwreck was cleaned of hazards, oil and toxic materials. It is now fully integrated into the landscape of the area, offering an idyllic site.
